Tired of The Job Search? Consider a Franchise

Does your job search feel endless? Are you feeling more than ready to start your career but you continue to job hop in constant search of the right fit? If this sounds like you, chances are you’ve contemplated a career change more than a few times and/or you’ve already made some sort of change, but you may be thinking about career transitioning in the wrong way.

A career change doesn’t necessarily mean heading right to another corporate job. Although a specific corporation can play a large part in your career happiness, if your hesitations are with more than just your boss and/or coworkers, chances are you are still going to be unhappy at another corporate location. If you are in this limbo stage where you are truly rethinking what you want your career to be and exploring new avenues, why not consider franchising?

One of the initial misconceptions of contemplating franchising opportunities is that franchisees are required to be natural-born entrepreneurs, but this is not the case. Entrepreneurs actually do not make the best franchisees because of their inherent drive to do things their own way. Find out more on why entrepreneurs may not make the best franchisees HERE.

In a franchise system, you are essentially using your existing management, and operations experience and incorporating them into a whole new role. A role that may be the satisfying career you’ve been looking for. When franchising, you are basically agreeing to use an existing trademark and business model and run it as your own. This allows you the freedom to be your own boss, begin your career, and build and plan for your future without having to reinvent the wheel. Your years of corporate work has already fine-tuned your management skills. In fact, our North West Houston Texas franchisee, Randy Garrett, quit the corporate world after 30 years to become a Brothers that just do Gutters business owner!

When purchasing a franchise, you have the advantage of incorporating an already established business plan and brand into a new market. While doing this, you also have constant support from the franchisor, and other franchisees. Because of the brand establishment, and successful business model, franchising is less risky than a startup, and allows for a quicker ramp up to success.

When looking for franchising opportunities, it is extremely important to research industries and/or products that interest you. You want to be passionate about what you’re selling. Researching a specific franchise’s support system and speaking with their existing franchisees is also an extremely pertinent piece of your research.
